Related Topics

Hedge Connection, a platform for connecting fund managers with allocators, has formed a partnership with conference organiser iGlobal Forum.

The new relationship will provide iGlobal Forum event clients a year round technology platform for connecting and building relationships, while Hedge Connection looks to expand its business beyond the hedge fund community into the various industries served by iGlobal Forum.
The industries served by iGlobal Forum events include independent sponsors, global REITs, private equity, private equity real estate, and specialty finance. Through the new partnership, the top-level senior executives that attend the exclusive networking events will have the ability to connect beyond the days of the events and request one-on-one introductions using Hedge Connection’s proprietary technology.
“At iGlobal, we specialise in connecting top-level decision makers in a structured, efficient environment,” says Anna Ivanova, CEO of iGlobal Forum. “Our new relationship with Hedge Connection will give our clients the ability to connect with that same efficiency 365 days a year.”
Hedge Connection has been connecting the hedge fund industry using its patented virtual introduction technology since 2005. Capital Club is the latest iteration of the service. Qualified allocators, looking for investment opportunities, are interviewed and added to the programme. Fund managers, looking for capital, make introduction requests to these allocators. Accepted introduction requests conclude with a scheduled meeting between the two parties. By partnering with iGlobal Forum, Hedge Connection will be able to add new verticals to the platform.
“We have wanted to take our virtual introduction technology beyond the hedge fund industry for some time now,” says Hedge Connection CEO Lisa Vioni (pictured). “I have enjoyed getting to know Anna and her team over the past year and am excited at this synergistic opportunity to work together.”
Collectively, the strategic partnership enhances the experience for both iGlobal Forum and Hedge Connection clients. Members of Hedge Connection’s online platform benefit from an expanded database of investment opportunities, while iGlobal Forum attendees see their conference experience expanded beyond the days of the events.
